yOOD TASTE in Wedding Stationerf is be»t ihown by a ihort and oonciw 
form, diitinfnished for its simplicity o( chaiacter. The form of both 
invitation and announcement Tarics with the leqnirements of the case. 
The most approved styles of engraving in vo^ne this season are the 
Old English, Cazton, and English Script 

Where the circle of friends of the two families is large, both inviUtions 
and announcements are nsnally issued. The invitations are sent to relatives 
and friends who, living near, wonld be likely to accept The announcement* 
arc sent to friends at a distance, who wonld not, in all probability, accept an 
invitation were it extended. The sending of announcements to friends who 
are not invited to the ceremony is a matter of courtesy, which should not be 
overlooked. 

Invitations and announcements, whenever possible, should be issued in 
the names of the bride-elect's parents, or in the name of the surviving parent 
if one be deceased. If an orphan, cbaperonage should be selected from among 
near relatives in the following order: 

A. The bride-elect's bachelor brother, a married brother 

and his wife jointly, or a married sister and her 
husband jointly. 

B. Grandparents. 

C An uncle and aunt And failing all relatives, 
D. A guardian. 

Wedding Invitations should be sent out at least ten days in advance, tmt 
preferably three weeks. Wedding Announcements are never sent out until 
after the marriage !»* taken place, and are usually forwarded the day after 
the ceremony. 

The receipt of an invitation to a church wedding, accompanied by cards 
to a breakfast or reception following the ceremony, demands a written answer 
immediately, accepting or declining. 

If the invitation is to the church alone, no reply is necessary from those 
attending. They must leave their calling card with the usher, or write their 
names on the church admission cards. Those not attending should send 
cards to the bride's house on the day of the ceremony.

A Weddinf Announcement icqniic* no acknowledgment, it'i issue being 
merely a matter of courteous formality, and to apprise the iclatives and 
friends of the marriage. 

In wordinf a Weddiat Invitation, or in fact a social annonnoemcat of 
any nature, the following is a good rule to remembei^-Say nothiat super- 
fluous, employ no abbrcTiations. 

The year line on an invitation is superfluous and its omission is advised.

The above invitation is issued by the bride-elect's elder unmarried bro- 
ther, both her parents being deceased. The wording of the line "requests 
the pleasure of your company" may be altered as desired, although the 
above form is deemed the most cordial bidding to a house wedding, where 
in every instance a reception will follow the ceremony. 

The other permissible fonns arc:

The above invitation is issued in the joint names of the bride-elect's 
nurried sister and her husband— she being an orphan. 

The form "Requests the pleasure of your company" must never be seen 
in an invitation to a church wedding. It is altogether too cordial a bidding 
to the place. 

Where invitations are issued in names other than those of the bride- 
elect's parents or bachelor biothert her surname must always be given, and 
where the surname appears, the prefix "Miss" should precede the name. 

When a wedding takes place at noon, either of the following forms may 
be used to designate the hour, as may be preferred: 
"at high noon" 

"at TWBLVB o'clock NOON*'

If preferred, the address to which replies are to be sent, may be embossed 
from a die on the flap of the ontside envelope. The latter way serves a 
double purpose. It indicates the address to which replies are to be sent, and 
it insures the return of invitations not delivered. 

Where the marriage ceremony is to be witnessed only by the immediate 
members of the family, and is to be followed by a reception, the following 
form is used :

These invitations are mailed to all relatives and friends whose presence 
is desired at the reception following the ceremony. To those desired at both 
the ceremony and reception, a small ceremony card should be enclosed with 
the invitation, worded as follows : 

CEREMONY 
AT HALP APTBR 8BY3N O'CLOCK 

The above invitation is extended in the Joint names of the uncle and 
aunt of the bride-elect Here the surname " Johnston" is added for identifica- 
iion, and the prefix "Miss" precedes the name. 

Honorary titles are never used, but for ministers and doctors the 
"Reverend" and "Doctor" are spelled in fulL 



Jlinmitu 







In a wcddint reception invitation the conjunction "and** couple* tb« 
names of the prospective bride and bridegroom. 

The time set for the ceremony is usually one half-hour before that 
indicated on the reception invitation. 

Where the bride-to-be is an orphan, and it is impossible to issue the 
invitations in the names of relatives or guardian, the following form may be 
used:

InviUtions for the re-marriage of a widow should be issued in the name

do not issue the invitations.

InTitationa to a breakfast or a reception following a church wedding are 
engiaved upon cards, enclosed with the invitation to the church. If the 
wedding takes place in the forenoon or early afternoon, the reception which 
follows is usually termed a "Wedding Breakfast" Where the ceremony is 
performed in the late afternoon or in the evening, the term "Reception " is 
invariably applied to the social gathering which ensues.

(Correct 

An inviUtion to, or an umoascement of a wcddinf ihoald, if mailed, be 
cnclowd within both an intidc and an outside enTetopa. 

Greater conrtcsr it shown when each indiTidnal member of a familr is 
sent a separate invitation or annooncement, as the case may be. In many 
cases, however, this mle U not strictly followed. 

We will snppose that a family consists of a father, mother, two sons, and 
three daatbtert, and that the whole family is to be invited to the wedding. 
In tnch a case seven seU of invitations might be nscd, one for each individ- 
ual. Three sets of invitations would in most instances be deemed sufficient 
to tend to a family of the above number. 

One for the father and mother jointly. 

One for the two sons jointly. 

One for the three daughters jointly. 

The inside envelope containing the invitation extended to the father and 
mother would be addressed as follows: 

MR. AND UKS, JAMBS HINKT ANDRBWt 

This would be enclosed in tlie outside envelope, which would be indited 
as follows : 

MRS. JAUSS RBNRY AHDRRWS 

180 AVBNUB ROAD 

TORONTO 

The inside envelope containing the invitation to the two sons would 
bear the following: 

THB HIISRS. ANDRSW8 

The outside envelope to hold the above would bear the name and address 
of the elder brother only, as : 

MR. CHARLBl BDWARD AHDRBWS

As a special feature in the execution of orders for all social functions, 
we have installed a department of addrcsiint in which the entire care of 
folding addressinf and posting will lie assumed, thus relieving the hostess of 
the tiresome details consequent on tbe sending out of a large number of 
invitations. 

In case of illness or death in the family, a good form to recall the invita- 
tion is worded in the following manner : 

RKatUmg UB. AHD UBS. WILLIAU rLSTCHBB 

Wtddint SBO to bbcall thb iNviTAnoH

■BVBNTT-THBBB BANDOLPH STBBBT 

6TBATPOBD, ONTAKJO 

The words "a death" miy be substituted for "serious illness." 

Tbe accepted styles of inviUUons for Wedding Annivenaries arc the 
regular "At Home" or "Reception" forms, preferably printed in black, 
though sometimes printed in gold or silver for the golden and silver anni- 
venaries, with tbe monogram embossed from a die in gold or silver at the top 
in the centre, with the dates arranged on either side. 
Ammmaiy A suggestion of the anniversary is thus given by the tincture of the 

ImUaHont monogram, bnt it is not in good form to use the expressions " Silver Wedding," 
" Golden Wedding," etc 

The maiden name of the wife and the name of tbe husband may appear 
at the top on opposite sides of the invitation.

least matter of importance, after one has obtained an artistic design, is the "°"'*™"' 
acquisition of a steel die which will do justice to the original dnwinf. It 
is one thing to draw or paint a dragon, but quite another to cut an intaglio of 
it ia metaL The cngnvint in other words, must be in many respects in- 
terpreUtive ; it cannot be a slavish copy without actual loss somewheie. Our 
die-sinkers are classed among the finest on the continent, and we guarantee 
our work to be the finest ptocntable, yet at prices which are most moderate, 
considering the high quality of the work. 

In the upper right-hand comer of the paper, not too high up, or else in Addmt Din 
the middle of the sheet near the top, the address of the writer may be emboss- 
ed. The rule as to the position of the embossed address is very simple. If 
no crest, coat of arms, monogram, or other address appear on the sheet, the 
address looks more graceful in the middle of the sheet If a crest is embossed 
in the upper left-hand comer, the address must necessarily appear in the 
upper right-hand comer. It is, however, considered quite correct, especially 
on small note paper, to stamp the address in the middle of the sheet, near the 
top, with the crest or coat of arms directly above.
